It will be on in stores available for purchase on April 1, 2014. My article is about using shape to design journal pages.
This photo did not get into the article so I wanted to share it with you here. Here is what I write about this page in my Patagonia watercolor journal.
One of my favorite journal pages is one where I painted a meadowlark and a vista behind him. The meadowlarks were plentiful and darted about the brush flashing their red bellies. I often heard their melody as we hiked. Instead of just painting a scene with a meadowlark in it, I wanted to try a different point of view. I painted him much larger than the vista and had him placed off to one side to help frame the page. He is looking back over landscape as if to say he is the guardian of this remote area.
